    Default BoA Rune - Still not addressed in tonight's hotfix - please fix!

    As title the BoA rep runes are still bugged (to prevent an exploit I hear) but this is very frustrating as my raiding main is different to my achievements/grinding main and so my raiding main cannot equip the new runes I have worked hard for.

    I was patient on the assumption the next hotfix would address this but according to patch notes nothing has been done yet.

    I know plenty of others who have found the same with the new capes sending to alts only to not be able to rune once equipped.

    Making rep runes BoA was a huge QoL change so please return it thanks!

    Surely somebody along the way considered unsocketing w\ these runes...

    I understand that if you were simply allowed to unsocket and resocket rep runes, half the population wouldn't bother getting faction reputation.

    However... They also never had a problem w\ these runes being applied to BOE items and then being sold. Some of these items like belts and capes could easily get you through raid content without being replaced.

    I believe that was the exploit - but they need to fix it and allows alts to be able to use the runes somehow otherwise they have just effectively reverted one of the best QoL changes in recent months.

    Seems easy enough just make the BoA runes only usable on soulbound items.

    Or make rep account-wide. I don't understand why that approach wasn't taken instead. It seems a much simpler alternative to what they've been doing.

    Not everything can be done with as rapid turn around as we'd like.

    The fix for this is being worked on however.

    Making rep account wide seems like it would easily solve this issue.

    With all the items being BOA there's no reason they couldn't do that.

    Some people are idiots and like completing rep on multiple characters, these people also tend to be bad with money so they're a prime target for Trion to make money off of. Taking away an incentive for those people to spend more money would be a bad business decision.

    Please please please make reputation account wide, your change to rep items and making them account bound was fine but then you tested doing the same with runes and now your in a pickle. If you can't bring yourself to do this then give some simple item like a rune scroll.... very close to enchants scrolls in world of war....... With the simple idea to have an account bound rune scroll so only the player using these can mail to alt for use. Make the runes soulbound again and problem solved.
